SPINNING PLATES TEACH THE BALANCE OF NEEDS AND WANTS.
As a former Financial Planner and Accredited Asset Manager Specialist (College of Financial Planning), Brad (aka "Mr. Z.") is uniquely qualified to teach students about the importance of math and personal finance. He uses his 30 years of worldwide performing experience to entertain grades K-6 while helping them grasp abstract finance concepts like budgeting, saving, needs and wants and more.
Students leave the assembly grasping concepts that many adults don't, with an ability to not only understand math and money, but know how they can get more of what they want, all without begging and pleading!
FEATS OF MEMORY INSPIRE STUDENTS TO EXERCISE THEIR MINDS.
Brad is a record-setting Memory Athlete, Speaker and Author who demonstrates his "feats of memory" in schools and for corporations worldwide. As he approached 40 years old, he noticed a decline in an already temperamental memory, so he threw himself into memory improvement, experimenting on himself to see which techniques worked and which were a waste of time.
Students are both inspired and motivated by the assembly, with an understanding of where they need to improve their ability to remember and the tools to do so. They also regularly exclaim, "Wow - that's so cool!" and are excited to apply the techniques of memory improvement in their lives.
